killer but also a pedophile. the former prosecutor, criminal defense attorney and some real characters that we're all being introduced to in this trial. dan, you first. i'm wondering about the testimony from the so-called rifleman. how damaging is that do you think to the defense? >> in terms of the actual charges that whitey bulger is facing, it's not that damaging. murder charges are going to be proved. there's overwhelming evidence. however, this case is unusual. it seems like the defense is more focused on stopping the prosecution from proving things that ruin his reputation like he's a rat or kills women or he's a pedophile and in that sense, that means a lot to the defense. in terms of whether he'll be convicted of murder, it probably won't make a difference. rick: what do you think of that point, the defense strategy here? could this be some kind of a preventative strategy before this guy goes to prison? >> definitely. i think they've had the conversation and bulger has told his attorneys, look. i'm going down. i know i'm going to prison but i at least need to be protected. i ca

to that part and could face up to 20 years in prison for that. in terms of aiding the enemy, the defense argues that bradley manning, of course, was a whistle-blower, according to the defense, that he was trying to reveal abuses and crimes actually committed by the u.s. military in the wars in both iraq and afghanistan. legal experts say the prosecution may have a hard time proving aiding the enemy in this case because you have to prove intent and although some of these documents ended up in the hands of former al qaeda leader osama bin laden no evidence whatsoever, none presented during the trial, that bradley manning knew that those documents would end up in his hands. in fact, one legal expert, military legal expert told us the only case he remembers was back in the civil war where a union soldier was charged with aiding the enemy when he leaked the position of union troops to a newspaper in alexandria, virginia. >>> all workers have been accounted for after explosions rocked a propane plant in florida overnight. eight people taken to the hospital and no word on what ignited the explosions.

highway money. there would be no more shared national defense. it would just be texas on its own. the land where nobody messes with the fact that poor people can't afford health insurance. that was almost four years ago exactly. >> the opposition to reforming health care isn't the most cogent thing in the world thus far. the gop health care solutions group in congress, you will recall, admitted this week they think it's best if they don't actually offer any health care solutions. they'd rather just keep saying no to whatever it is the democrats are offering no matter what it is. but in this rollicking substance-free festival of incoherence, there is one man who is determined to be the most incoherent of all. little known outside his home state for anything other than having beautiful hair and for threatening to secede from the union back in april, texas governor rick perry is now threatening that texas will also secede from health care. i told you it was incoherent. speaking with a conservative talk show host yesterday on wbap in arlington, texas, governor perry had this to say about what
stroked. but the sequester cuts, half of them come out of the defense budget. idea when the sequester was conceived was that it was supposed to be so terrible for both the right and the left that it could never be allowed to become law. then the compromise was struck, was no, nobody can come up with anything they like better so we'll let it become law and that's acceptable to a lot of people on the hill but it is really unacceptable to john mccain. both he and the president would really like to come up with a deal to replace the sequester and it's given him an incentive to cozy up to democrats. and work with some people like lindsey graham. >> which "cozy up," we mean talk to. i think we allow ourselves to be hijacked by this narrative that you are cozying up to narratives if you are talking to the white house about matters of national import. >> it is not just talking. the end game for mccain is to come up with a big fiscal deal that does things that conservatives would really dislike because it would unwind part of the sequester. mccain i think cares much less about the total size o
question. should the united states be primarily concerned with its own defense? do we have to be careful we don't get invaded and two days later say somebody says if we'd only done one thing because but we didn't do it because we're concerned about civil liberties. who is going to win that fight? >> are you asking me? >> i'm asking david. if you come out with what looks to be an esoteric argument and you didn't use that power, you're dead politically in this country if you get attacked. >> chris, i worked 20 feet from the oval office for years and i saw the president the national security team grapple with a very real threat of attack. and the tools that are there that the nsa provided were important in thwarting some of those attacks. if we hadn't done it, then we would indeed have had more catastrophic kinds of attacks. i think people would have been outraged about it. but carly is right. we have to be carable about how we do it. that's why we have to have the involvement of all three branchs of government -- congress, the courts and the executive branch. the answer is not to scrap the in
by the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration by cutting domestic priorities in order to fund defense. that's unacceptable. he won't sign that. the across-the-board cuts are hurting our future. >> fair enough, but the process in washington over continuing to fund the government or raising the debt ceiling is necessarily a process that has to be engaged in. i guess what i'm asking is, is the president, unlike what he's done before signaling, he will go to the brink this time in order to stop cuts that he thinks will harm the economy? >> what the president did this week is he sent a very clear message that washington has to stop playing these brinksmanship games. it's not about who wins and who loses -- >> but this report, mr. secretary, indicates indeed the white house is setting itself on a position to go to the brink, in order to force republicans -- >> what we have said is congress needs to get its work done and needs to fund the kinds of things the american middle class need, and we need to get the debt limit extended in a way that doesn't create a crisis. that is what every congre

and will not face the death penalty. and in what may be the most dramatic proceedings, the defense began presenting witnesses in the priel of whitey bulger today. they're looking to convict on gambling, extortion, drug trafficking, and 19, yes, 19 murder charges. a question on everyone's mind is, will whitey testify? he has apparently told a friend he wants to set the record straight. joining us are the captains of our legal team, attorney seema ayer, and former prosecutor patrick murphy. thanks for being here. seema, i want to start with the whitey bulger case and that question. do you expect him to testify? overall, what's the defense's strategy? >> krystal, dear, i hope not. hasn't he said enough? any time we've seen that man in court, he's basically getting bleeped for cursing. so can you just imagine what he's going to say? >> it would be great tv. >> of course, of course. that's why we're here. however, at this point president defense has done enough to set up some sort of reasonable doubt in this case. if he testifies like within every other case, state or federal, in this country, when a de
are the people who are bankrupting the government and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. so i think it's precisely those people who are making us weak in defense. >> in fact, chris christie's new jersey pays much more into the federal government through taxation than it gets back in federal spending. for every dollar in tax revenue that new jersey sends to washington it gets back only 77 cents. where does the 23 cents go? to rand paul's kentucky and other states. think of them as the gimme states, if you will, who take much more from the federal government than they ever pay for in federal tax revenue. for every dollar rand paul's kentucky sends to washington kentucky gets back $1.57. chris christie might be seeking the electoral votes of rand paul's gimme gimme state someday. so he will probably use a different line of defense against rand paul's gimme gimme gimme nonsense. joining me now, steve mcmahon, veteran democratic strategist and co-founder of purple strategies. steve, who are you betting on in this fight? >> i love it. i hope they go and they fight to a draw an
line of defense against rand paul's give me, give me, give me nonsense. i was so wrong. not about the dollars and cents. but about chris christie. he went there today. >> senator paul wants to start looking at where he is going to cut spending to afford defense? maybe he should start to cut the pork barrel defense he sends home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollars and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents per dollar, maybe he should look at that before he looks at the federal side. because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon. >> and rand paul foolishly talked about bacon. >> this is the king of bacon, we have two military bases in kentucky. and is governor chris christie recommending we shut down the military bases? he wants to be this great champion of the military? what does he want to do, shut down the military bases? he is making a big mistake fighting with the republicans, because the republican party is shrinking there on the east coast, attacking me is not helping the party, he is hurting the party. >> two military bases in kentucky,

an offense and a heard a defense. first the obama offense, he sees the economy not getting all that much better this year or later, and doesn't want to be blamed for it. what he wants is a battle, a national debate on the following question. do the people want to persist with the rate of growth we have now, with a higher than healthy jobless rate that's ebbing only slowly. or push for infrastructure spending that will kick the economy into a higher gear. he wants this debate and he wants to be positioned on one side of it. where the republicans refuse to support an agenda, and the president is seen supporting one. he also knows the republican right ram rodded by ted cruz planning a showdown this fall. a manufactured crisis that leads to a government shutdown and risks national default. he the president wants to position himself in the national stance coming this fall, as the leader who wants government to function, his opponents. he's basically admitting the reality, there are strong forces posed against them now. the republican right that is saying, there will be no budget agreement, th
and relatively transparent defenses for what this is about, which is people love sex, they love talking about sex, they love talking about other people's sex often more than their own sex lives. any time you can move from the real issues in the new york mayoral race, which includes things like public racial profiling rather than private online profiles, and any time you get off the sewer system and on to somebody's texts, obviously the public is interested. the new york voters are interested, so i get why we're talking about it. they're talking about it. but this is not the criteria of how to choose a mayor. the fact that what we've learned now is what we already knew, is that anthony weiner has this part of his life and it has intersecreta intersected with his public life and voters may pull away from him. you've got "the new york times" and "the new york daily news" saying he should be out of the race. you've got the usual mcaur theist mafia trying to bring him down. what do we know? what we learned is what we learned from st. augustine a long time ago. many people say to their lord, to their s
that because the defense itself did not pursue a stand your ground defense that it was irrelevant but it was absolutely not. it was part of the position of the judge as she gave instructions to this jury and clearly, this one juror felt very constrained by that. >> when the jury asked during deliberations on that saturday afternoon going into the evening, they asked for further explanation of misdemeanor, and then before -- she sent them back to start talking about it rather than giving them at that moment the further instruction, the clarification. then they never came back and they never got it. so there was something else going on there towards the last couple of hours. sybrina fulton of course trayvon martin's mother, had reacted to this. she said, it is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror b29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true, that george zimmerman literally got away with murder. this new information challenges our nation once again to do everything we can to make sure that this never happens to another child. >> sybrina fulton has

, and this is no defense of the language, the language was clearly bad and sexist. this is not the first time at least this new york reporter has heard language like that from a president aide. there have been notoriously rough and aggressive and really colorful press aides in and around new york city and state government over the years. this was obviously a mistake by barbara morgan. this was obviously a mistake where she believed she was off the record or thought she was off the record, tpm says she was not. she shouldn't have been saying even if they thought she was off the record in general but especially given the circumstances of this campaign. i think that yesterday, i saw anthony weiner's 5:00 event in midtown. they seem like a campaign having a very, very hard time this is not a surprise. they don't quite know what to do at this point. >> anyways, you wrote it seems weiner is trying to channel the spirit of ed koch who wasn't a bad guy. last night we saw a side of him come out when a voter challenged him on the question whether he could ever be trusted. of course, he gave a self-interested an
on the defensive? >> i'm not going to speak for what the president is doing or why he's doing it. if i had poll numbers as low as his, i'd probably be out doing the same thing. >> i actually broke out laughing out loud. has boehner seen his poll numbers lately and the poll numbers for congress? the president is at 48% positive rating. boehner's at 18%. i mean, i don't know if he was joking or delirious, jonathan. >> me either. but it begs the question so why isn't speaker boehner out there touting a jobs plan? touting an alternative to obama care which he keeps allowing to go to the floor to be repealed for it to go nowhere. i mean, speaker boehner -- poor, speaker boehner. he's in a tough position. we all know why. i think the president is right to try to go around congress. and in fact, let's keep something in mind. the president has tried to work with republicans and work with congress since he walked into the white house especially since the democrats lost the house to the detriment of his base. the base was yelling at the for why was he trying to work with people that didn't want to work w
